Give Back at the Keswick

Nov 9

Weeks before Thanksgiving, Superstorm Sandy gave millions of people in our area something to be thankful for when our area was largely spared from the catastrophic after-effects of the hurricane. While many people escaped with minimal damage and inconveniences, many more of our family and neighbors were hit hard in an already difficult time. It’s times like these when we must look around and look within to see how we can help. Please read on and see where and how to help those in need.

Message from the Jazz Foundation

Who would have thought after Katrina that it’s been 7 years and we’re still getting the musicians of New Orleans back on their feet, and that now our musicians in NYC would be needing help because of a hurricane.

It’s so much worse than one might have imagined. Aside from the most obvious need of water, warmth, food and money, hundreds of musicians have lost gigs because of Sandy. Clubs are closed, and musicians haven’t been able to travel out of town for work either. Lost gigs means no money for the rent. No money for the rent means the Jazz Foundation will be providing emergency assistance.
